Preface. 



THE Hamiltons, so far as trustworthy evidence goes, cannot equal in descent 
either the Stewarts or Douglases, their history beginning about two 
hundred years later than that of the former, and one hundred years later 
than that of the latter ; still their antiquity is considerable. In the introduction 
to the first chapter I have dealt with the suggested earlier origin of the family. 

The Hamiltons were conspicuous in their loyalty to Queen Mary, and, judging 
by the number of marriages between members of the different branches, they 
were also loyal to their race. 

Throughout their history one hears little of the violent deeds which charac- 
terised the Stewarts and Douglases, and one may truthfully say the race has 
generally been a peaceful one. 

In hereditary honours they have reached the highest rank, having acquired 
the Dukedoms of Abercorn, Chatelherault, and Hamilton ; the Marquisates of 
Abercorn, Clydesdale, and Hamilton ; the Earldoms of Abercorn, Arran, Cam- 
bridge, Clanbrassill (twice), Haddington, Lanark, and Rothes ; the Viscounties 
of Boyne, Claneboye, Hamilton, Limerick, and Strabane ; the Baronies of Aber- 
brothwick, Abercorn, Avon, Bargany, Belhaven, Binning, Brancepeth, Claneboye, 
Holmpatrick, Innerdale, Kilpatrick, Machaneschyre, Melros of Tyninghame, 
Paisley, Polmont, Stentoun ; also the Baronies of Hamilton of Dalzell, Glenawly, 
Hambledon, Mountcastle, Strabane, and Wishaw. They have also had fourteen 
Baronetcies conferred on them. 

In personal honours they have been Knights of the Garter, Thistle, and 
St. Patrick, and also of all the lower orders of Knighthood. 

The standard history of the family is John Anderson's Historical and Genea- 
logical Memoirs of the House of Hamilton, published 1825, but its author admits 
that many of the accounts of the smaller branches are not to be trusted owing 
to " the suspicious assertions of family vanity and doubtful tradition." 

In this work, where no better account was to be found, I have in the main 
followed Anderson, correcting and supplementing his account wherever possible, 
giving my authority for doing so. 

One reason for following the House of Hamilton is that many of the 
Armorial Bearings appear to have been granted on the assumption that the 
pedigrees there given were correct. 



PREFACE 



ARMS. 



The distinguishing Arms of the family are a red shield charged with three 
argent or ermine cinquefoils, generally pierced. By referring to the Plates it will 
be observed that the cadets usually differenced by adding a small charge in the 
centre of the shield.

CHAPTER I 



The Hamiltons. 

IN the days when a long pedigree, without regard to accuracy, was the proud 
possession of every noble or gentle family, it was the custom to trace the 
Hamiltons back to the Beaumonts or Belmonts, Earls of Leicester from about 
1 107 to 1204. The reasons why this family was selected were — First, that on the 
Seal of Robert, fourth and last Earl of Leicester, who died 1204, appears a single 
cinquefoil pierced ermine, and the Hamiltons have always borne three cinquefoils, 
which were supposed to be the heraldic difference of a younger son. The second 
reason arose out of the Hamilton Crest and Motto, the former an oak tree in which is 
fixed a frame saw, and the latter the single word " Through" The story runs that 
"Sir Gilbert de Hamilton," flying from the Court of King Edward II. of England in 
1323, was closely pursued, and to escape capture, he and his servant changed clothes 
with two woodcutters, and set to work. When the pursuers passed without noticing 
them, Hamilton cried to his servant " Through " ; hence the origin of Crest and 
Motto. The weak spots in the story are that Sir Gilbert's son was in Scotland 
twenty-seven years earlier, and also that the Crest of Sir John Hamilton, which 
appears on his Seal in 1388, was a boar's head. The tree with the horn of the antelope 
supporter doing duty as a saw was first used by the first Lord Hamilton, and is 
shown on his Seal in 1477. The Motto appears first on the Seal of the Duke of 
Chatelherault in 1560. 

In the Introduction to the Report on the Hamilton MSS. it is stated that a 
Walter Fitz Gilbert of Northumberland married Emma de Umfraville, and it is 
suggested that as one of the earliest ancestors of the Hamiltons was a Walter Fitz 
Gilbert, and also that as the Umfravilles bore a single cinquefoil (but always witJiin 
an orle of crosses patty) on their Shield, the Scottish Hamiltons may have had a 
Northumbrian origin, but the Hamiltons would not be likely to take Arms from the 
female side, and the Arms of Fitz Gilbert as a surname were apparently Or, 
three chevronels gules, which have no resemblance to those of Hamilton. It has also 
been suggested that as a Roger and Robert de Hameldon appear in Northumberland 
about 1209, the Hamiltons through the similarity of name may be descended from 
one or other of them, but there is no proof of this. 

The Hamiltons may rest content with their real history. It is true they cannot 
claim the same antiquity as the Stewarts or Douglases, they could not rise to the 
level of the Stewarts in being kings, but they came very near the goal when they 
were declared heirs to the throne in 1543. They contested the power of the 
Douglases, reached as high a point in family honours, and survived them, as the 



io THE HAMILTONS 

many honours they hold to-day testify. Their proudest boast may well be that they 
were " the loyalest when nearest to the throne." 

I shall now pass on to the true history of the Hamiltons, so far as our present 
knowledge extends. 

Authority — Scots Peerage. 

(i) Gilbert, of whom nothing is known except that he was father of: — 

(2) Sir Walter Fitz Gilbert de Hameldone, died before 1346, whose name 

appears in the Ragman Roll of 1296. In 1314 he was Captain of 
Bothwell Castle for the English, but after Bannockburn he surrendered 
the castle to Robert Bruce, and was rewarded with the lands of Machan 
(Dalserf), which had belonged to John Comyn. At a later date he also 
received the lands of Cadzow, Kinneil, Lambert, and Auldcathy. He 

married, first, Helen , and, second, Mary Gordon, supposed to be a 

daughter of Sir Adam Gordon of that Ilk. He had issue : —

The family tradition was that they were descended from Archibald Hamilton 
of Deserf, said to be son of Lord Claud Hamilton (No. 20), but apparently Lord 
Claud had no such son. The author of the House of Hamilton thinks this family is 
more likely to be a branch of Olivestob, and mentions : —
